Upon the release of the 100 of the World's Tallest Buildings, the first 100 of the world's tallest buildings will be more than 985 feet (300 meters) for the first time. This book will showcase many of the new tall builds across Asia and the Middle East, in particular.

Compiled by the CTBUH (Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat), with insightful introductory essays on key trends in the skyscraper typology (a preview of the future) and by renowned tall buildings expert, Georges Binder, on the history of the world's tallest buildings by decade, this ambitious and comprehensive text provides in-depth descriptions of the buildings' design and significance, accompanied by stunning images, detailed drawings, and plans. Towering structures are oftentimes the subject of admiration only for their sheer height or skyline silhouette, and oftentimes criticized for their poor environmental performance (and not without justification). This book aims to change that impression by showing innovations that are particular to this group of tall buildings, in addition to generally good architectural design and engineering prowess.

The CTBUH's Awards series draws from the multi-disciplinary expertise of the practitioners directly involved in bringing these buildings to life. This guide is intended for anyone working on the design and operation of tall buildings at both the building and urban scales.
